2016 Outlook: Fantasy Handcuff


Andre's senior season at Boston College was impressive (2,177 yards on 355 carries with 18 TDs), but it was a huge step up from his previous resume, and he was helped by a powerful offensive line. Williams is pure power back with very little wiggle. He looks stiff while running upright, but he has surprising, 4.56 40 speed for a 230-pound back, especially when he breaks into the second level of the defense. Andre will break arm tackles and finishes his runs with power. He has excellent leg drive and good vision. His hands had no value in college (10 career catches for 60 yards). His hands were better than expected at the combine, but he's still not much of a receiver. His value could be hit or miss in the NFL. His style won't work behind a poor offensive line, but he could be electric in the right offense with a plus blocking scheme. There wasn't a lot excitement in the Williams' game during his rookie year. He finished with the most touches on the team (235), but Andre averaged only 3.3 yards per rush. Williams started to show growth in two of his last four games when he had a pair of 100-yard outings. New York gave him 20-plus carries in three of his 16 games. I expect growth in 2015, but he'll enter the year as the Giants' No. 2 early-down back behind Jennings. Andre has a chance to grab 150 touches, 600-plus yards and lead the team in rushing touchdowns. He has low upside, but he's a must-own handcuff if you draft Jennings.
